My fascination with photography began as a teenage assistant to a studio photographer in the Midwest and I haven't stopped shooting since. An extensive career in advertising as a Los Angeles-based producer/director of national commercials informs all I do today as a commercial photographer. My shoots are relaxed, efficient, professional. Capturing the finest images possible is my primary concern.
The minimum fee for a day's shoot is $850. I recommend meeting at the location in advance, without charge, for a full understanding of what's required -- tailoring the budget to include additional equipment and crew, if needed or not, and most importantly to schedule the shoot day for ideal results. Let's figure out the best and most economical way to get the quality images you need.
SHOOTING FOR QUALITY
Combining years of experience with the highest-resolution digital cameras, precision lenses, lighting gear. A big screen laptop is often used to evaluate each shot as we go, which designers and art directors especially appreciate.
Nikon's latest: 45.7 megapixels
Taking the shot is only the beginning. Each selected image is later adjusted for luminance, color balance, contrast, cropping -- often adding details such a dramatic sky, or eliminating unsightly elements such as power lines.
